Rihanna To Launch New Fashion Show
Rihanna will scour Britain for some undiscovered designer talent and after a series of challenges the ultimate winner will design a costume for Rihanna’s Wireless performance in Hyde Park this summer.
Rihanna will be involved in casting and post-production of the show and she will also make the odd guest appearance, alongside the show’s host, Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts. Talking about the new fashion project, Rihanna said; “I have been very fortunate to work with some truly amazing designers and stylists throughout my career, and they have been instrumental in making sure my creative vision reaches the stage. I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts during the course of the show.”
Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts is well known for her fashion-forward style and she’s always one of the faces on the front rows at London Fashion Week. She is probably the perfect face to front the show and talking of the new project, she said; “I was so flattered when Rihanna asked me to work with her on this show. I’m so excited for us to get started on finding a new up and coming British designer who just needs a chance, a little bit of help in getting their skills noticed. There are talented people, undiscovered because they don’t have the means, or their circumstances are too far away from the fashion world. This show is here to discover those people and give them a shot. I’m looking for someone who can think outside the box, and who isn’t going to give up at the first hurdle. Ultimately, someone who can’t go ‘undiscovered’ anymore.”
